Skyline Drive Was Named The Most Beautiful Place In Virginia And We Have To Agree
When considering all of Virginia’s naturally striking landmarks, there’s always one that stands out time and time again. Shenandoah National Park is by no means a hidden gem, but its beauty is iconic. The best way to experience Shenandoah is by driving the 105-mile Skyline Drive. Hugging the ridge of the mountains, this timeless route has enamored both visitors and residents of Virginia for as long as it has existed. Conde Nast Travelerhas designated Skyline Drive as the most beautiful Virginia destination and we can’t help but agree.
Whether you visit during the fall, when the foliage dazzles the mountainsides in hues of red, orange, and gold, or the late summer, when dazzling wildflowers grace the meadows, you’ll find yourself grateful for this natural wonder.
